Are you trying to get your hands on the latest Windows 10 2004 update? Are you are unable to find if your device is compatible? Worry not, thanks to Dell and Lenovo. These two PC makers happen to be among the first few OEMs to have come up with a confirmed list of devices that support the latest Windows 10 2004 update.
How to know if your device is compatible with Windows 10 2004
Last month, Microsoft made the most-awaited Windows 10 2004 update available to download. But for some reason, the update is not compatible with all Windows 10 devices at the moment. As a result, there was absolutely no clarity among users as to what all Windows 10 PCs and laptops are currently able to run Windows 10 2004.
Rather than resorting to guesswork, isn’t it better to know if your device is compatible before you run the update? Many users have complained that their Windows 10 devices are unable to run the update, possibly due to certain compatibility issues with either drivers or something else.
If you scan through this Lenovo support page you will come across a nifty tool that allows users to enter a serial number of their product and know whether their device is compatible with Windows 10 2004 or not. Alternatively, users can also sign in using their Lenovo account credentials.
Following is the list of Lenovo series tested for Windows 10 2004:
- ThinkPad laptops
- Lenovo Notebook/Ideapad
- ThinkCentre & AIO
- IdeaCentre & AIO
Lenovo has also displayed limitations for each product category that highlight issues for certain devices.
Meanwhile, Dell has also made similar arrangements to let users know what all devices are compatible with the Windows 10 2004 update. Similar to Lenovo, Dell has also listed its groups of products:
“This article designates Dell laptops and desktops that have been tested for update to Windows 10 May 2020 Update (Build 2004), as well as previous versions of Windows 10.”
Devices listed on this Dell support page are tried and tested with the Windows 10 2004 update.
